We are co-founders and principals of Red Jacket, but also lifelong friends.
Between us, we have practiced in the fields of law, business and investments for decades. We have been advisors and principals. We have built deep and long relationships throughout the disciplines that matter to our clients. And while our clients are often new relationships, we don't so much meet new friends as recognize them.
We help our clients use traditional professions - legal and portfolio management services - to achieve exceptional results. We believe public investment vehicles like stocks, bonds and hedge funds have matured to the point where investment alpha – return over a benchmark - is hard to find. We look elsewhere. We deploy tax and legal strategies along side investment vehicles so the alpha you gain is not investment alpha, but net worth alpha.
Red Jacket is registered with the OSC in the following categories: Investment Funds Manager, Exempt Market Dealer, Portfolio Manager, Commodity Trading Manager.
